Red hair and yellow rood
Frederick to Hollywood
Forty-second and bloody good
The last line sounds like he may be a prostitute... back in the '70s, before they cleaned up Midtown Manhattan, 42nd Street was a pretty unsavory area of town.
And hib... I think he's talking about a male, not a female... some FODs refer to each other as "she"... especially, if s/he's a transvestite. (Born and raised in the West Hollywood area of L.A., aka FOD Central.
